A new 18-minute gameplay video for Ghostwire: Tokyo has been released by IGN. Right from the start, one can notice the emphasis on ray-traced reflections. From rain effects to glass windows, the developers have made abundant use of the technology. The premise of the game is that Tokyo has been overrun, and it’s up to the player to rescue their family while uncovering the mystery of what has led to this calamity.
The visuals are reminiscent of the cities in Crysis 2, with elements found in Control. As the protagonist traverses Japan’s capital, we see numerous famous landmarks. The game is already gaining praise from YouTubers about its city and image quality. As the player frees inhabitants from their ghostly possession, the similarities to Control become apparent.
The PlayStation 5 version has a number of features that have been optimized for the console.
- Stunning visuals: With ray tracing and HDR, the power and speed of the PlayStation 5 console allows you to explore Tango Gameworks’ unique vision of Tokyo twisted by a supernatural presence.
- Adaptive triggers: Whether fighting with conventional weapons or supernatural powers, adaptive triggers drive you directly into the action.
- Haptic feedback: Feel the power of your paranormal abilities with unique haptic feedback for every ability and character action in Ghostwire: Tokyo.
- Fast loading: Get into the action with near instant load times and traverse the haunted streets of Tokyo without load times thanks to the PlayStation 5 console’s ultra high-speed SSD.
- Tempest 3D AudioTech: An ominous giggle behind you. A distant dog’s bark. The PS5 console’s 3D audio will immerse you in the eerie streets of this unique take on Tokyo.
Ghostwire: Tokyo releases on March 25 for PC and PlayStation 5. The PC system requirements can be found here.
